Traditionally, the standard doesn't specify any warnings. It only
distinguishes between three types of programs:

- ill-formed, diagnostic required
- ill-formed, no diagnostic required
- well-formed

although now that there's precedent for a construct whose purpose is to emit
warnings, namely, the 'deprecated' attribute, the committee may be willing
to consider including something like static_warning.
